Lancaster London Flower Afternoon Tea 2017


Flower Afternoon Tea CloseupFloral fever lands in London in May, so with the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show and Hyde Park’s Rose Gardens in full bloom, Lancaster London is following suit. From 3 May until 31 May 2017, the chefs will be switching bags of flour for flowers and the butter for buttercups as they present the ‘blooming marvellous’ Flower Afternoon Tea.

A beautifully botanical arrangement of sweet delights includes: a creamy Lavender chocolate mousse cake; White chocolate macaroons topped with crystallised violets; and a tangy Lime and elderflower trifle with edible flowers. The Flower Afternoon Tea features both traditional and raisin scones with classic toppings of strawberry jam and clotted cream, plus a delectably nectar-sweet orange blossom jam.

Everything will be coming up roses with tasty savoury treats such as Lancaster London home-smoked salmon roses on rye bread; and Coronation chicken served on sweet cranberry bread. A warm tartlet of English asparagus, with saffron and sun-blushed tomatoes offers a rather exotic scent; while the delicious Sunflower seeded choux buns with wild mushroom, truffle oil and cream cheese are full of wild British woodland flavours.

Sweeten up summer even more with a glass of Pommery Champagne, the perfect accompaniment for the Flower Afternoon Tea.

The blossoming tea is served in the hotel’s sumptuous first floor Lounge Bar from 2pm until 5.30pm, Wednesday 3 May until Wednesday 31 May 2017. The tea is priced at £30 per person and £45 with a glass of Pommery Champagne included. The Flower Afternoon Tea is also available as a Flower ARTea, priced from £35 per person.
